    Best bang for buck Catback

    Just curious which offers the best performance and sound for the price. I dont want to go too expensive. Maybe somewhere around 300$.

    Hookers work great and cost very little. If not hookers than Magnaflow. Check the sponsors for the systems If you can't find one ill PM you where you can get them.

    Hooker is another good choice.

    i believe magnaflow has slightly better flow. . prob not a signicant amount tho. .
    hooker usually runs $350
    magnaflow about $400
    you can probably find either cheaper if you do some searchin.

    Ebay is no good for that stuff. I'll search more when I'm ready to get a catback.

    I have heard of guys finding the Magnaflow catback for $320.
    No idea where though.

    its all a matter of opinion, regarding sound...

    I run SLP LM2, with ory and a big cam on a m6... sounds mean and great no rasp or drone. Fabricated well too

    Hooker Aero
    Magnaflow

    why buy a catback, ditch the cats, and go ORY with LTs, or X/H pipe couple of bullets and before the axles turn downs.

    You won't get duals for under $600 on an LS1 car.
